Subject: RE: Where is our Catter Cowboy Songs?
Maybe I did. Stuff happened on stage and set-in-stone tales just "changed." And then, some of it would stay, but some wouldn't. "Studs Turtle" happened one New Years Eve at the yearly live party us singers were invited to at radio station WFMT. Studs' radio show aired on that station for many years. As one came in the door, they would hand you a bottle of champagne---and then tell you that you were responsible for what you said on the air! (Gimme a break!?) --- A week after mayor of Chicago, Richard J. Daley, died, there we all were, rather high and on the air live. I was NOT a fan of R.J. Daley after his police beat and gassed Viet Nam war protesters at the Democrat's convention in '68. I took note of the fact that Daley had been laid out naked and face down------so everyone could kiss him goodbye! I still hear about that one every so often -- pro and con.

And the "hurtle turd--turtle herd" was a mistake I made one time---but then it stayed.

Dick, I really don't remember about the turtle soup. Sorry.

But thanks for asking.------Art
